Design Wall Monday #2

I signed up for the UFO challenge and the first project the participants are supposed to work is UFO #6 on our list. The original #6 on my list appears to be "unavailable"... M. I. A. and A.W.O.L.!
To locate it, would take me a long time, and I would rather quilt than clean/search.
SO...I changed my list!
That is called "creative prioritization of the to-do list".

Ta da...now #6 UFO is my "disappearing 4 patch"! I  had better get to work on it quick before it also disappears!

The blocks for this quilt were shown on a design wall Monday post last September and they were easy to find this week. So on my design wall today is all the blocks sewn together and a border on. I'll tell you, that lime green is bright enough to be a nightlight!

The next step is to figure out something for the backing.

Hop over to Judy's blog and sew what other quilters are working on this week.

Boy, it is bright!, but I like it. Nice solution to your problem. I knew that would happen to me, so I made sure I had ufo in hand before I put it down on my list -lol.

Vicki said...

Love this quilt! UFOs are so easy to lose track of around here. Have fun finishing your list!!

Mary said...

I'm still searching for a couple of my UFO's too. I have enough to switch if the number gets called before I find them. It's good that whoever sleeps under this quilt will have their eyes shut, huh?

I love this.

Very creative re-listing, LOL! Not sorry you have to work on this beauty, I bet :)

Chris said...

Sweet quilt. I am glad I am not the only one who loses blocks and projects :)

Helen in the UK said...

Very funky colours! At least this is now a top and soon to be a quilt :)

Judy D said...

What a bright and happy quilt! This is great. Way to change up your list to make your life less stressful.

Sorry to hear that your UFO is MIA. This one looks fabulous though. Good luck with the backing. I usually just have to give up at that point and go shopping.

This is what I call a 'sunglasses' quilt. I make them all the time. They're quilts you need sunglasses to look at! LOL! Love it!

Kathy, I answered your question about my applique circles on my blog. I am also guilty of creative prioritization. I didn't make my list until she had already drawn the #6, so I put what I wanted to work on there. Love your quilt, and the colors!

Kathie said...

Pretty pretty and love the creative prioitization!!!

Laurie said...

Judy, I love that block and lime is the new neutral, haven't you heard?

SarahVee said...

Love the lime! Great quilt. Congrats on prioritizing:)

Congrats on a finishing a UFO top! And you are only 2 weeks into the new year! WOO HOO!!

I really really like this - granted one of my fav colors is lime!!

Judy DID say we could tweak the challenge to fit our needs... good solution. I actually spent over an hour looking for a specific UFO before adding it to my list last month and in the process found several that I had totally forgotten about. Sigh...

Cathy said...

Mine had gone missing, too. I have a rule in my house, and especially in my sewing room, when all else fails look under something, and it did finally turn up. The problem gets really bad when there are so many piles to look under, that it would be easier to clean than to look under everything, and who wants to do that, rather than sew? LOL

Peaceful Piecer said...

Love the bright colors!

Diane said...

I really like that one! yeah for UFo finishing!

Kate said...

I love the nighlight green and all the purple. Wonderful quilt. Congratulations on making progress on a UFO.

I love the bright happiness of this top. I've just discovered the pattern this past weekend, and I like it very much.

Zlaty said...

I love your quilt! So pretty! I love bright colors!

Happy sewing Kathy!

FUN FABRICS!!!!!! {{and I won't tell anyone that you rearranged your list if you don't tell anyone that I did the same}} :0)

Candace said...

Love it, the colors are great, I like the green.

Mary said...

It looks good! And I like the blue half log cabin blocks too.

I've got to get my #6 quilted but I'll probably do one more top before loading it.

Alycia said...

I like the creative re prioritizing results! That is a beautiful quilt!!! The colors are cool!

Bonnie said...

Did you cut the 9 patches differently to get this design? I've made the pattern once and somewhere have some blocks ready to be sliced up. Gaaa I have no idea where it is... Love the lime green and pinks. It sings to me! Great job.
